Bewildering Stories

Cratered World

by Richard Ong

It was a cloudy night but it helped reduce the glare of the reflected sunlight on the iPhone’s camera lens. The passing clouds obscured parts of the gibbous moon such that it looked like the shattered Klingon satellite Praxis after part of it blew up and its debris almost destroyed Captain Sulu’s USS Excelsior. The iPhone really made a significant difference in extending the reach of my aging telescope, just as a new corrective lens saved the Hubble telescope and gave us those wonderful photos.
